I came across the following image in an archive of photographs related to the 1962 Sino-Indian War:
I have posted a question for identification of the aircraft.
The text in the archive seems to suggest the photo depicts evacuation of Tibetan refugees by the USAF. However, the location of the photograph and the destination, is not stated.
Google search for "
US evacuation tibet" and other combinations, do not yield any related results.
Google Image search for the image has also not yielded any positive results.
- There seems to be a military person (wearing a beret and appearing to be dressed in uniform, slightly away from the lineup of the kids, and also holding a child) who appears to be of Indian origin and thus most probably Indian Army.
- The source of the archive seems to suggest very strongly that the photograph was taken in India.
What is the history behind this photograph?
